Nintendo: Fixed the "unpatchable" security gap on the Nintendo Switch

If you are planning to buy a Nintendo Switch game console to run it Linux using the "unpatchable" exploit that was publicly revealed a few months ago, think again why Nintendo has rectified the security gap.

Informative, some time ago, the group hackers, ReSwitched, publicly revealed a security vulnerability in the Nvidia Tegra X1 chip named Fusée Gelée and could allow anyone to hack a Nintendo Switch game console to install a Linux-based operating system and run homebrew code and applications using a simple trick.

Nintendo on her part worked hard to correct the vulnerability, which hackers called "unpatchable". The company is releasing revised Nintendo Switch units that are no longer vulnerable to Fusée Gelée and similar hacks.

The good news is that if you already have a Nintendo Switch console, you are likely to be able to hack it with various available methods of the market so you can run Linux and other homebrew software on it. In the same way, some revised Nintendo Switch units still have an older firmware that is vulnerable to these hacks.

The SciresM hacker says on Twitter that the new Nintendo Switch units use 4.1.0 firmware that is vulnerable to deja vu exploit. The hacker urges users who bought a new Nintendo Switch running 4.1.0 firmware not to upgrade to Nintendo's recently announced 5.0.0 firmware.
